The Auburn Tigers returned to the practice fields at the Auburn Athletics Complex on Wednesday evening after three days off and completed a 90-minute workout in shells. 

"I thought we had a really good practice tonight," Auburn head coach Gene Chizik said. "The kids were very energetic. The guys were very into it. They had a couple of days off, just trying to physically heal up a little bit, which is good. We came back tonight and got after it. It was a very good practice and I feel like we made some good strides tonight." 

The Tigers have an open date this Saturday, but return to the field on October 6 against Arkansas at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The game is the third of three consecutive home games for Auburn. The contest is scheduled for 11 a.m. and will be televised by ESPN or ESPN2. 

Auburn leads the all-time series with the Razorbacks 11-9-1, including a 5-3-1 mark on The Plains. The last meeting at Jordan-Hare Stadium was in 2010, when Auburn scored a series-best 65 points in a 65-43 victory.
